The Senior English Language Fellows Program is an exciting opportunity for experienced teachers and trainers to increase the level of English language instruction by training local English teachers and designing curriculum that will be used by generations of learners. Senior EL Fellows serve the 10-month Fellowships primarily as teacher trainers at Teacher Training Institutes, Ministries of Education, Universities, and other institutions. The standard responsibility of Senior EL Fellows is to train English teachers, though some are responsible for developing materials that are often used countrywide by generations of English language learners. Senior EL Fellows are improving the level of English instruction around the world in a sustainable and effective manner. Currently we are recruiting for at least 39 Senior Fellowships all over the developing world for the 2005-2006 academic year. Senior EL Fellows make a difference in the lives of thousands of people. This is your opportunity to help build a peaceful and prosperous world community, make a tangible difference in the quality of English instruction, and make a personal difference in the lives of others.

Senior Fellows receive a $24,000 stipend, living allowance (designed to pay for housing, food, utilities, and transportation to and from work), shipping allowance, educational materials allowance, pre-departure expense allowance, in-country program activities allowance, round-trip travel, accident and sickness insurance, and are eligible for a dependent allowance.

Applicants must be US Citizens, have a MA TESOL (or closely related degree), and have significant teacher training and/or materials development experience.

All application materials must be submitted by May 15th, 2005.

The English Language Fellow Program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and administered by the School for International Training.
